Daily Draw: Tarot of the Secret Forest ~ 4 Cups

Home maintenance. We've been in this money pit for 19 years now. Mostly we like it but it was sold to us with a lot of undisclosed flaws, one of them we're still trying to fix all of those years later. When we purchased it real estate law here was still buyer beware sucker. So we've rolled along over the years dumping money into it. But if we hadn't we'd have what we see here, a ruined shell. Ruins were picturesque, haunting, and achingly beautiful when we visited ones like this in Wales and England, but live in one? Umm...No Thanks.

I'm reminded by this card and deck that in most things in life, not all is as it seems. There are always hidden layers that only time will reveal and 20/20 hindsight isn't worth squat much of the time.

“May you have the hindsight to know where you've been, The foresight to know where you are going, And the insight to know when you have gone too far." ~ Irish Blessing

The deck chosen to take me into 2008 is Tarot of the Secret Forest, Lo Scarabeo 2005. Unique in that the cards are double sided, giving similar but not exact positive and negative images. Art by Lucia Mattioli and Pietro Alligo.
